Bees in the Garden

Good morning,

Mom called these flowers "Live Forevers" and they certainly do!  I have a long wide row of them on each side of the front walk that have grown from little pieces of a plant my son gave me about 15 years ago.  I think they are ready to take over. 
When I went out to take pictures of the pink blooms I found a bee on almost every bloom.

It was a busy day harvesting pollen! 

All the best,
Lois

Pretty flowers, Lois, and obviously the bees agree. What are they called?

Lois said...

They sure are pretty! I love the color. The bees must be doing their job!

Oh I have those same flowers in my yard, can't remember the name of them but they do spread! I wonder who tends your garden while you are away Lois? Love Di ♥

I was stalking these flowers yeasterday as well--no bees. Must have been the wrong time of the day. You've just given me an idea for next WW--thanks!

Lois Evensen said...

Good morning,

Thanks for all the kind words and for stopping by.

Diana, the bees tend my garden when I am away. :\ I don't have the same flowers I used to have, but some of them do manage to return even though I am not home year round to take care of them.

All the very best, my friends,

Lois

I love this plant. I just planted one in August and it did last forever. Wonderful Idea to use as a plant down the walkway. HMMMM.... LJ

Hi Lois, I love Autumn sedum and yes, the bees love them too. Mine is Autumn Joy and are a deep rose. They are a lovely late bloomer to brighten the fall garden.

Rose said...

Looks like the bees think you are raising their favorite crop!
